Business Ethics and Transparency Target Group
Leader: Doszpod Dénes
The mission of the Target Group is to increase the standard of business ethics in Hungary with a special focus on the fight for a business environment free of corruption, illegal employment practices and fraud. We endeavour developing ways and means to avoid such practices and lobbying for the implementation of respective programmes with the government, non-governmental organisations as well as with private sector enterprises.
- In the first half of the year, the Target Group held three working groups at ALTEO, Telenor and MOL member companies, where we conducted a professional dialogue and shared good practices including the introduction of a new compliance system, anti-corruption practices and a recently published Code of Ethics and Conduct.
- At the Budapest Business School, on 12 May we held the traditional "Ethics in the School" workshop for MA students.
- In the second half of the year, we will hold our first autumn target group at PwC Hungary.
- Throughout 2016 our Target Group was operating in line with our tradition to hold frequent meetings with one of our members. In 2016 we visited four members to engage in various discussions: ABB Ltd., BAT Hungary, EY Hungary and Horváth & Partners DLA Piper.
- We updated the ’Frequently Asked Questions and Answers’ document which is available under Initiative.
Apart from our internal meetings we kept on striving to find new channels in addressing current and future business leaders. For this purpose, we organised two conferences with the support of GE.
The event in spring was about the integration of ethics and compliance into advertisements and other sorts of corporate communication. We welcomed Noémi Alexa (Central European University), István Szabó (KPMG), Csongor Hajna (Provident) and Dr. Ildikó Fazekas (Secretary genera Hungarian advertising self-regulatory board).The next major programme was held in November in which we walked through from different perspectives how cyber risk evolves and what kind of impacts it can leave on everyday business. Our distinguished speakers included Balázs Sinka (MOL), Gábor Tarján (Magicom), Ádám Csíki (EY) and Dávid Kőhegyi (DLA).
- We continue the partnership with BCE, the second workshop titled Ethics in School was held for MA students.
- In cooperation with CEU, we organised a workshop for business ethics experts again.
